Hurling Discussion / Re: hurler of the year so far anyone?
« on: September 13, 2018, 04:10:57 PM »

The Hurler of the Year award, which will be voted on by inter-county players, is also likely to go the wire. Joe Canning is nominated with team-mate Pádraic Mannion and Limerick's Cian Lynch.

Exactly what I've been saying.
More contests = more manliness = more entertainment.
High catching, long range kicking and score taking: bring back Boylan.

Interesting article

« The Football Review Committee started with that and decided to look to the public to get a steer and through the website we got 3,000 submissions from the public and players. The consensus was that they wanted to see high catching, long-range kicking and score-taking; they were the key ones.”

Catastrophic Failure

In a note to the Minister for Health Simon Harris at the start of his report, the author, Dr Gabriel Scally, said there were many indications that the system in place “was doomed to fail at some point”.
The report published on Wednesday, says there were serious gaps in the governance structures of the screening services.
“In the specific case of CervicalCheck, there was a demonstrable deficit of clear governance and reporting lines between it, the National Screening Service and the higher management structures of the HSE.
“This confusion complicated the reporting of issues and multiplied the risks. It is clear that there are also serious gaps in the range of expertise of professional and managerial staff directly engaged in the operation of CervicalCheck. There are, in addition, substantial weaknesses, indeed absences, of proper professional advisory structures. These deficiencies played no little role in the serious issues that concern this Scoping Inquiry.”
The report said that “unlike many similar problems in healthcare delivery, and screening in particular, it was impossible to narrow the focus to a few or even a small number of areas”.
“The problems uncovered are redolent of a whole-system failure”, the report states.
The Scally report says the current policy and practice in relation to open disclosure in the health service was “deeply contradictory and unsatisfactory”.

It said that in essence there was “no compelling requirement on clinicians to disclose” . It said it was left up to their personal and professional judgement.
There was, unfortunately, limited public health medicine input into CervicalCheck and I firmly believe that was to its detriment. The time has surely come where public health physicians are accorded the same recognition as clinical colleagues and their skills deployed at the core of all public health programmes. I hope that movement on this matter can take place in the near future.”

The GAA isn’t interested in changing anything.

Brexit was sold as sovereignty but will be creative destruction. They don’t have enough customs people.Liam Fox does not care. Massive queues at Dover? Rees Mogg could not care less. The more chaos, the more the plutocrats make.

Nice to see Brody from Laois and Broderick from Carlow being nominated. No Rossies. That is the problem with getting an easy Connacht semi.

Only 2 Kerry nominees- very few would have predicted that at the start of the season
